Virtual Event

2021 DCE Grad Registration

Each year, CDE Graduation recognizes undergraduate, graduate and professional students graduating throughout the academic year (fall2020, spring 2021, or summer 2021) so we can celebrate them and honor all that they’ve achieved while at UI. Please join us in a virtual room ceremony on Wednesday, May 12, from 6-8 pm CDT, and help us cheer them on!

The ceremony will consist of keynote remarks from both an alum and a graduating student, recognition for winners of our three awards, and of course the traditional reading of names to celebrate each graduate. In the event that you’re unable to attend, the full ceremony will be recorded so you can view it anytime. In addition to the ceremony, we’ll also be creating a permanent website to further commemorate the graduates; this link will be shared closer to the event.

Your access to this celebration is very important to us. A real-time ASL interpreter will be present for our reception, and we are planning to utilize Zoom's automatic closed captioning feature. We are also ensuring that all the content on our website is screen–reader–accessible. There is a question in the registration form that provides you an opportunity to ask for additional accommodations, but if you have any questions regarding this, please email Sarah Lambert, planning committee chair, at sarah-lambert@uiowa.edu.

Graduating students can register through this form (graduate registration form) by Monday, April 5, at 5 p.m. CDT. Guests (friends, family, staff, faculty, and community members) can register through this form (guest registration form) until Monday, April 19, at 5 p.m. CDT.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events. If you are a person with a disability who requires a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this program, please contact in advance at
